RIDGID SeeSnake Max camera system

The SeeSnake Max rM200 camera system from RIDGID combines portability and versatility for inspecting lines up to 200 feet long and 1 1/2 to 6 inches in diameter. It has a built-in docking system for attaching viewing monitors and is compatible with SeeSnake CS10 and CS1000 digital recording monitors. 800/769-7743;

Hach LDO probe, model 2

The LDO probe from Hach uses a luminescent sensor to measure the concentration of dissolved oxygen (DO) in a solution. Molecules within the sensor are excited by a blue LED and the oxygen in a sample causes them to relax. The higher the concentration of O2 in a sample, the faster the luminescent molecules return to their normal state. The sensor also takes into account the temperature of a sample. Each sensor cap is calibrated in the factory prior to shipping. 800/227-4224;

Endress+Hauser ultrasonic biogas flowmeter

The Proline B 200 ultrasonic biogas flowmeter from Endress+Hauser measures the flow and methane content of biogas for process control, emissions reporting and energy balancing in anaerobic digesters and other biogas producing processes. The meter operates in temperatures of 32 to 176 degrees F and pressures up to 145 psi. Accuracy of volume flow is 1.5 percent of reading and accuracy of the optional methane measurement is 2 percent absolute. 888/363-7377;

Victaulic stainless steel pipe press

The flame-free Vic-Press system from Victaulic joins small-diameter (1/2- to 2-inch Type 304/304L and Type 316/316L) pipe in seconds. The press-to-connect system is designed for off-the-shelf Schedule 10S stainless steel pipe. Pipe is cut to size, deburred, marked for visual inspection and inserted into a lubricated coupling, fitting or valve. The PFT510 handheld tool presses the component onto the pipe end, providing a positive mechanical interlock and rigid, permanent, leaktight joint. 610/559-3300;

Universal Flow Monitors battery-powered flowmeters

Battery-powered CoolPoint vortex shedding flowmeters for water and low-viscosity fluids from Universal Flow Monitors are designed for locations where there is no power nearby or it is cost-prohibitive to wire the monitoring station. The meter runs on three AA alkaline (six-month lifespan) or lithium batteries (two-year lifespan) and has no moving parts to wear or clog. Flow rates or total are indicated on an LED screen. Flowmeters range in size from 1/4 to 2 inches with flow ranges from 4 to 200 gpm, maximum pressure of 300 psi and temperature from 32 degrees to 210 degrees F. 866/542-9641;

CHEMetrics Total Phosphate test kit

The Total Phosphate test kit from CHEMetrics is based on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency methods 365.2 and 365.4. The test employs the persulfate digestion-ascorbic acid method to convert various forms of phosphate to orthophosphate. Results can be obtained using the CHEMetrics V-2000 photometer or a spectrophotometer capable of accepting a 16 mm cell. 800/356-3072;

EXTA3 Division 2 industrial keyboards from Pepperl+Fuchs feature an antimicrobial and chemical-resistant design to withstand chemical cleaning and washdown environments. Available as industrial panel mount or standalone keyboards for use in Class I, Division 2, Groups A, B, C and D environments, the IP66-rated keyboards have a stainless steel desktop housing and anodized aluminum polyester foil faceplate. The keyboards offer multiple connectivity options with 5-foot cable and are available in mouseless, touchpad mouse, joystick mouse and optical trackball mouse versions. 330/486-0002;

Flowrox LPP-T4 hose pump

The LPP-T4 hose pump from Flowrox can move up to 440 gpm with pressure up to 150 psi. The pump's low-friction, rolling design enables it to operate continuously in 200 degree F temperatures. 410/636-2250;

ABB ProcessMaster Minimag flowmeter

The ProcessMaster Wafer (flangeless) FEM300 Minimag flowmeter from ABB's Measurement Products is available in 1/10- through 4-inch (DN3 through DN100) sizes with a Tefzel liner. Standard electrode choices include Hastelloy C, Tantalum and Platinum/Iridium. The transmitter can be integral with the sensor or remotely located. Advanced data storage within the sensor eliminates the need to match sensor and transmitter in the field. Factory-set parameters can be modified without opening the housing via the display and soft-key buttons. The unit rejects invalid entries. 800/752-0696;

Opto 22 SNAP communication module

The SNAP-SCM-CAN2B, high-speed I/O serial communication module from Opto 22 acquires data from generators, motors, sensors, actuators and other devices connected to a controller area network (CAN). The module, used with the SNAP PAC System, includes programmable automation controllers (PACs) and Ethernet-based I/O systems. The unit has one input for receiving data from devices on a CAN network. The module does not transmit. It is optically isolated from the equipment and devices it connects to, as well as from other modules on a shared I/O rack. 800/321-6786;

Parkson large-volume Aqua WashPress

The Aqua WashPress from Parkson is designed to meet the demands of special, large-scale applications, including sluiced flows with high water volumes. Water-driven sluices carry screenings to the press, replacing conveyor systems for a simpler system with fewer moving parts and less maintenance. The system ties in directly with the screen to operate only when the screen is active and as needed. The unit also incorporates a wash zone that uses water to separate organics, keeping them out of the screenings and inside the plant for additional processing. 888/727-5766;
